Serving on a nonprofit organization’s board or one of its committees is a meaningful way to make a difference in your community. Newaygo County nonprofits are waiting for your talents, your leadership, and your passion!

Join us to learn what serving on a nonprofit board is all about at a free Introduction to Nonprofit Board Service seminar. You’ll learn more about:

  • Roles and responsibilities of board members
  • Nonprofit fundraising, financial management, and board structures
  • How your skills and talents can help strengthen local nonprofits

Choose from one of four dates and locations:

You don’t have to be ready to make a commitment; just come and learn! Then, in May, you’ll have the opportunity to attend a “nonprofit speed dating” event where you can connect with local organizations who could use your skills and talents.

These seminars are part of the 2017 Leadership Series. Working with the Johnson Center for Philanthropy, our goal in 2017 is to identify and train a new wave of people willing to serve on our local nonprofit, church, township, service club, and other community boards. The tradition of strong volunteer boards and committees is uniquely American and is key to making Newaygo County one of the most vibrant rural counties in Michigan.
